next month. i want to sign that bill into law as soon as possible. >> what if anything can get done while congress is away? politico's marty kay, can the president make the most of these two weeks? can he do things while congress is away? >> he can probably be very effective while congress is away of they're scattered around the country and the world. he can use this time to talk about immigration, a little about gun control if he wants to. what we heard at the end of last week before recess, was that the gang of eight senators, half republican, half democratic, are pretty close on some sort of an immigration breakthrough. how that plays on the full senate remains to be seen but they are, some of them are ready to start debating this. it is not clear what happens at the house but the senate is ready to start talking immigration. >> that gang of eight starts to seem broken by party lines a little bit. every time we talk about immigration, we have to look at the details. some people are pro pathway. maybe after 13 years. some are pro pathway after the bored he is secure. some are pro
of this country was supposed to vote ten hours ago to pass a law that would allow them to restructure the banks. we're still waiting. it's unclear if they are going to vote today at all. at the same time we're getting reports that maybe the european union is going to demand even more from this country. hours ago we were told by the leader -- the head of the leading party that they were extremely close to a deal and yet we still wait. the same time it's growing increasingly chaotic in this country's economy because the banks are still closed. they have been closed for seven days now. it looks like they will be closed for at least ten days. that means people running businesses can't do payroll, can't access their capital accounts. becoming incredibly difficult, become a cashless society because people are limited to 260 euros out of the atm. as a result, for example, gasoline stations only accepting the cash, the vast majority of them. some are accepting credit cards but only in limited amounts. we spoke with the owner of one gas station and he explained that his suppliers are demanding cash up f
clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have a divisive 2016 primary, rick santorum is going to want to talk about that and that could really hurt them. >> do you think that will be the case in 2016? if you look
to create a talking point. they set priorities, send political messages and they're not law, they don't repeal law. they don't actually budget money and that happens during an appropriations process that comes later and senators filed about 400 amendments and vote on 10% of them this afternoon, stuart. stuart: meaningless, basically meaningless, isn't it? that's the bottom line, it's meaningless. and rich edson, thank you, nicole, how would you like to watch your favorite h.b.o. shows without having a buy a cable subscription, looks like that plan may be in the works getting it directly on the internet, since time warner is affected. >> right, right now time warner is up about .6%. this is the con at the point in time of the new way, the new digital way, everything we knew to be true back in the day is completely out the window, stuart, right? now you're talking other ways getting h.b.o. without having to subscribe to cable, it's an unbelievable concept and i know i pay a heck of a lot in cable. stuart: bypassing the cable operators is an interesting concept. i can see it coming. nico
congress, think they can write any law, regulate behavior, and change any law. stuart: we talked about the situation, and, by the way, when the market opened this morning, the dow dropped 105 points, come back a lot, now down 36. maybe, charles, liz, maybe the market thinks that the cypress story is overblown, will not affect it, maybe not affect spain or italy artery. >> maybe not, you know, but certainly for people who have been really concerned with what's going on, with a government that buys 1.2 billion bullets, hires 16,000 new irs agents, a government that's spent a trillion more than they earn than brought in, it doesn't help. the people in this country who are afraid of losing their rights and liberty, it's scary. stuart: i want debt center stage, and it's not. >> it's not. it should be. it might be likely limited, but it shows there's nothing above political meddling. what used to be taboo is your deposits are safe from taxation. stuart: the time is up, butdagen, connell it's yours. connell: thank you, sir. dagen: if you bail out those depositors, why shouldn't they have to p
